You could get a RD1-2M and a DIP->PLCC adapter. The latter may be
hard to find at a reasonable price though. The ones that are easy to
find probably go for $50-100 but since it's just a 1:1 socket adapter
I think that's too much. If you look around you may be able to find a
good deal.

Note that space is tight around the PLCC socket on EPIA-MII at least,
so make sure it fits physically before you order.
